Interruptions between the first matzah and Koreich


After the "Maggid" portion of the Seder, we wash and then eat matzah. We then have marror, followed by the Koreich sandwich.

Some suggest that the ideal fulfillment of our Seder obligations comes in mimicking the matzah/marror consumption which took place in the Beit haMikdash. Therefore, one should not interrupt unnecessarily between the blessing recited on the matzah, and the consumption of the Koreich sandwich. One may speak, but only regarding matters directly related to fulfilling that mitzvah.

One who did interrupt would not need to re-recite the blessing.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 475:1; Mishneh Berurah 475:24)

Have a great day,
